105 in 105, day 54: *Rhoda!

PD: A girl stands against a white wall, wearing a traditional Indian sari that is hot pink, blue, & gold w/ paisley accents & sparkly glitter. Her hands are at her sides, wearing blue bangles.

Update 2018: 

*Rhoda needs $300/month more in sponsorship funds. You can sign up to become her sponsor here.

From her sponsorship page:

*Rhoda is a very sweet, funny girl with a hilarious, heartwarming giggle. She loves playing with dolls, small blocks, and other stacking type toys. She also loves music and always chooses the miniature symbols during music class at on-site school.

Update 2017:

*Rhoda lives at Jubilee Home. She loves playing with dolls, small blocks, and other stacking-type toys. Because *Rhoda’s epilepsy can make it difficult for her to stand and walk consistently, she often uses a wheelchair to get around, though she can also walk.

She attends on-site school with her foster sisters, where they learn life skills, learn a vocation, take music classes, and learn at their own individual educational levels. Learn more about her school, New Horizons School, as well as donate toward operational costs, here.

Update 2015:

*Rhoda loves music time and has learned to walk independently.

Original post:

Today’s child of the day is *Rhoda!

*Rhoda is a 10-year-old Lambadi tribal girl who has been learning Telugu since arriving at SCH. *Rhoda is autistic and has epilepsy, which doesn’t stop her from being adorable and singing at the top of her lungs. *Rhoda has a gravelly little giggle and is very outgoing. She loves Pediasure and dancing, too.

She sounds like such a comical personality!

Are you one of *Rhoda’s sponsors?

Please consider contributing to *Rhoda’s care. She is so deserving of every penny. This little girl has the potential to reach for the stars, but she can only get there with the best care possible.

Spread the word, sponsor a child.

An important part of SCH’s work is YOU! SCH relies on donations to keep running. Donation opportunities include child sponsors at any cost per month, from as low as $25/month. Sponsorship usually costs between $300 and $500 per child, depending on complexity of needs and which city they live in (Ongole or Hyderabad).

You can sponsor any child who needs additional funding at SCH by using the resources found here. Use these resources to get involved in other ways, such as becoming an advocate or volunteering. You can also become a medical sponsor (ideal for large groups or organizations who wish to support SCH) and donate toward monthly emergency medical expenses; or an educational sponsor and donate toward a specific on-site school. Learn about other ways to give charitably to SCH here, and check back often for additional opportunities. You can send gifts via Amazon India, make a one-time, general donation, pray if that is your calling, or volunteer at home or in India yourself.

*A note about names: SCH uses online nicknames for the children in order to protect their identity, per Indian government guidelines which state that children in care may not have identifying photos of them on the internet, as well as no identifying information such as birth name, place of origin, etc.

PD: the SCH logo – black text reads ‘sch’; red text below reads ‘sarah’s covenant homes’; heart-shaped flowers bloom from the name.
